Manish Arora has become the first Indian fashion designer to be decorated with France’s highest civilian award in recognition for his unparalleled contribution to the world of fashion.

French Ambassador Francois Richier conferred the Chevalier de la légion d'Honneur on the veteran fashion designer at a glamorous ceremony in New Delhi on Tuesday. “Manish is a pioneer in bringing the fashion culture of both countries together with his exuberant imagination. I am delighted to confer this high honour on him,” Richier said as he pinned the insignia on the designer.

On receiving the award Arora said, “I’m thrilled and honoured by the recognition I have received from the country that I love with all my heart. France has been an inspiration always. I now live between Paris and Delhi and for me France is literally my own country. I hope to keep getting inspired by France, the beauty and elegance of the French people.”

Eminent Indians who have earlier received the honour include Pandit Ravi Shankar, Amitabh Bachchan and JRD Tata. The Chevalier de la légion d'Honneur -- the highest distinction in France, is bestowed on both citizens of France as well as foreigners. (SH)
